yes, I got caught by Meta-s to to a non-return point... My vi use is 
less than basic and mostly restricted to times when I am in a hurry 
(starting emacs gives you time to get a coffee though ;-p).

That said, I can understand that those who use vi/ed/... do like them.
I also understand that emacs is huge and won't even try to think to 
suggest to consider putting it in /rescue :)
